MOSCOW, May 20 /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s Federal Tourism Agency (Rostourism) recommends Russian citizens vacationing in Thailand to show vigilance, to keep off places of mass concentration of protesters and to obey police orders.
Rostourism posted these recommendations on its official website on Tuesday after the martial law regime had been imposed in Thailand.
Apart from that, Rostourism once again recommended Russian vacationers to refrain from visiting Bangkok.
According to the Russian Foreign Ministry, the current situation at key resort centres Pattaya, Phuket, Samui, Ko Chang and Hua Hin is calm.
Earlier on Tuesday, Rostourism head Irina Shchegolkova told Itar-Tass that “the martial law implies stricter security measures, which is for the good of Russian vacationers in Thailand.” Rostourism recommends those who plan to visit Thailand to think twice before doing this because of ongoing riots in that country. “If tourists have a possibility to postpone a trip to Thailand to a later day or choose another vacationing destination, we strongly recommend to do that,” she said.
